Overview

About the property

Heather Glen Hideaway is situated at the foot of the Ochil Hills in a small town called Alva only 8 miles away from historic Stirling known as the "Gateway to the Highlands". Its also on a bus route. It is a compact comfortable self contained studio apartment designed for couples or a single person. Its a lovely bright and airy open plan living space and sleeping area with quality furnishings and wet room. It is convenient for shops, pubs restaurants and takeaways. No need to worry about that on your first morning as a welcome pack will be provided. The area offers incredible scenic walks, cycling, mountain biking, golfing, fishing, horseriding all at the foot of the Ochils. Around Alva you can find Gartmorn Dam and Nature Reserve which is 3 miles away. Alloa which is also 3 miles away is a larger town with many historical places of interest. You can also find leisure centres, clubs, pubs restuarant, shops and has its own railway station. Further afield around 15 miles away you will find Falkirk with its famous Wheel and the new Sculptures "The Kelpies" which is spectacular. Glen Eagles 15 miles away with its famous hotel and golf courses which recently held "The Ryder Cup". St Andrews 50 miles away a beautiful seaside town. The home of golf. Our future King and Queen William and Kate met and went to its university. Alva is situated between Glasgow and Edinburgh both around 40 miles away. The historic town of Alva was once famous for its woollen mills which kept all of the locals in work. We also have "The Silver Glen" where silver ore was found and believed to be the purest in Britain. If you are around in July why not attend the Famous Alva Highland Games. If it is a quiet relaxing break you are after look no further. The hillfoots as its commonly known is surrounded in Glens, castles and golf courses,

A nice convenient place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Neat ,well appointed, clean and quite spacious. The washing machine/dryer and wifi felt like great luxuries as the previous accommodation was lacking in both of these.

A very cozy and well equipped space.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely little apartment within handy reach of Glasgow and Edinburgh. And even within a reasonable drive of the highlands. The kitchen has most of the things you'll need for even an extended stay, and Jay and her husband were gracious and helpful hosts.

If you're looking for somewhere local to eat out, then the No 5 inn in Alva is highly recommended.

Lovely, well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this apartment twice. It is very well equipped with everything you need. Jay is great - really friendly and leaves a welcome pack of essentials (tea, coffee, milk, sugar etc) - which is a great touch. It is off the main road, so fairly quiet - but close enough to main routes for doing the touristy bit. The view of the mountains, from just outside the apartment, is beautiful!
